Activities by region
With cities and the vast countryside - North Karelia offers the best of both worlds. A wide
array of services and free time activities, smooth public transport, clean and beautiful wilderness, numerous clean-water lakes,
rapids, bonds and rugged hills and expansive ridges. The Pielisjoki river that
flows into lake Pyhäselkä, flows through the city of Joensuu (the city's name itself referring to a 'mouth of the river'). Koli’s landscape is full of countless sights to see - it is one of the most famous
attractions in Finland.
